Welcome to a Special Edition of The Wednesday Evening Post (even though it is on Friday!). Today, I'm celebrating my 5 year anniversary of starting this blog and my very first post. If you'll look over to your right, you'll see the huge anniversary cake there on the table and to the left is a completely stocked open bar for your enjoyment while you are here. Servers will be walking around with a variety of hors d'oeuvres, so please help yourself. Don't forget the GREAT GIVE-AWAY!!!! More info on that at the bottom of this post.
I'm so glad you came! 5 years. . .I can hardly believe it. For a stroll down memory lane for those of you who would like to see. . .here is the link to my very first post and my very first cards HERE. I had 3 comments and remember that I had no idea how they even found me! I was amazed and hooked from that moment on and the rest is history. Here are my cards for tonight:
I haven't used this stamp in ages! I LOVE this little guy. We had a break-in here in our neighborhood this week!! It was a house about 3 doors down from us and it is the home of a very cute, young couple. They found their door kicked in and their house ransacked and robbed. I just felt sick for them and wanted them to know how sorry I was that this had happened. So, I made this card for them and went to a local bakery and got them some yummy cupcakes to make them smile. The image was colored with my colored pencils and odorless mineral spirits. The sentiment was from "Gunther's Greetings" which was a stamp set designed after my own sweet Gunther!
Are those bee faces the cutest or what??? LOL I used baker's twine for the "bee trails" but all I had was black and white so I colored the white part with a yellow marker. Their little wings are all Stickled up and I fussy cut them out and popped them up on dimensional tape. The bee stamp is by Recolections and I colored them with marker.
